  • educationconnection.com broken by Peter Lowe's
    3 projects | /r/uBlockOrigin | 12 Apr 2023
    I think the sub-domain that has the most fingerprinting is et.educationdynamics.com: https://github.com/duckduckgo/tracker-radar/blob/main/domains/US/educationdynamics.com.json
  • How does DuckDuckGo App Tracking Protection work ?
    1 project | /r/duckduckgo | 20 Dec 2022
    Essentially it creates a VPN configuration to allow it to filter traffic (necessary for that to work), but your traffic isn't actually routed through an external server like a real VPN. It blocks requests for personally identifiable data (device information, personal information, etc.) going to third-party domains that have been added to the DuckDuckGo Tracker Radar dataset. This makes it harder for ad companies to fingerprint you and track your activity across apps and websites for the purpose of targeted advertising.
  • Plex android app trackers
    1 project | /r/PleX | 27 Nov 2022
    Why are there so many trackers for this application? 96 attempts at collecting over 34 different metrics for Google when I launched the app. Fairly disappointed. Users feel free to try it yourself with the public duckduckgo tracking app protection here or install the browser through the play store. Go to settings and more from duckduckgo to enable app tracking protection. It creates a filter VPN on your device similar to how most root-free ad blocks work. Launch some apps, even reboot, and see what you find out. Quite a few apps feed abobe, Microsoft, and Google a ton of your info (read the metrics collected) and Plex is one of the top offenders for me right behind Google's own apps.
  • Best options for recreating Apple's "App Tracking Transparency" on Android?
    2 projects | /r/privacy | 14 Aug 2022
    Considering how DDG maintains a list of known trackers, I was thinking "hey it might be possible to set up a Pi-hole using this", but perhaps this is more trouble than it's worth.
  • DuckDuckGo for Mac in Beta (With Waitlist)
    3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 12 Apr 2022
    Yes, we are actively evaluating possibilities for add-on support. However, you do not need ublock origin here for privacy protection. Our tracker blocker is powered by our best-in-class Tracker Radar data set (https://github.com/duckduckgo/tracker-radar) which is based on monthly crawls of the web looking for third-party trackers and uncovering the latest tracking techniques. Many academics and companies (including Apple) are now relying on this same data set for research and tracking protection. Similarly our Smarter Encryption (HTTPS upgrading -- https://github.com/duckduckgo/smarter-encryption) is also based on regular web crawls and is many times more comprehensive then anything else out there.
  • In these inflationary times, saving money on shopping has become more important than ever. What are some of the not so well known ways to help make those dollars stretch that you older folks might be willing to share with the younger crowd?
    1 project | /r/AskOldPeople | 8 Apr 2022
    You’ll also notice that your Google search results get far less dynamic as well. Everything will be within a certain proximity or relevance to your geographical location. You used to be able to turn it off and ask that results not be skewed based on it. Now it won’t allow me to. No more generic results. Apparently Google owns around 480 domains that are found to be trackers. Here’s a great compilation of domains and trackers you can look out for- it’s frequently updated and terrifyingly informative.
  • Safari IP Obfuscation
    1 project | /r/adops | 16 Mar 2022
    Yes, private relay is only iCloud users but with Safari 15, the browser hides the user’s actual IP address in requests sent to origins that are listed in DuckDuckGo’s Tracker Radar list. https://github.com/duckduckgo/tracker-radar
  • is android app tracking protection open source?
    2 projects | /r/duckduckgo | 30 Nov 2021
    I work on App Tracking Protection. We'll have an app tracker dataset in Tracker Radar in the future, as well.

  • Ghostery vs Duckduckgo extension - which is better?
    1 project | /r/privacytoolsIO | 7 Feb 2021
    In terms of performance and customizability I don't think any extension beats uBlock Origin. I'm unsure what filter lists Ghostery's extension uses (likely crowdsourced ones) but I think DuckDuckGo solely uses their own Tracker Radar data set which you could probably just import into uBO via Blokada's custom domains version (more here):
